Since their uncle is going to Africa for Christmas, and we're going to the North Pole, we had Christmas tonight with Uncle John. And their uncle spoiled them rotten--spoiled us all rotten. Michael especially expressed his TOTAL excitement over his gift. Remember the Lego set Michael was "saving" up for? When Michael pulled back the wrapping paper and discovered the set, he gave a dramatic faint. Then after he had completely revealed the box, he issued another grand finale faint for drama's sake. He then disappeared to his Lego Construction Site for an hour, came to the table to wolf down his dinner, and disappeared again until bedtime.
The other ones also loved their gifts. Jacob figured out his remote helicopter by the end of the evening. Audrey got some more Pollies to add to her cruise ship, and Alex is enjoying listening to her i-Pod out loud on the docking station. As for the Lego Boy, we had to threaten him before bed not to be constructing by the light of a flashlight or nightlight. And I'm pretty sure he's not going to be happy about a whole afternoon of choir practice tomorrow after church! He'll have that truck assembled in no time, however, I'm sure.
